Pros: Not too expensive for a card that was a series behind when I bought it and competed with the 660 decently well. Plays intense games on high fine, but like others have said is not for maxing out.
Cons: I have seen some strange things with this card in, like purple plasticy textures on things in skyrim, starting with a stump and in time the entire world. could be the game.
not as powerful as i expected it to be. gets warm and slows after 3 hours (in an antec 300 with all fans on)
Other Thoughts: Really regret accidentally purchasing this model instead of the more cores or more memory versions when shopping. I'm not confident enough to OC on my own but i doubt the factory superclock made up for the specs in casual use even.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card worked right away when i put it in. Drivers are reasonable.
Cons: I bought this specifically so that I could play Skyrim at its best but this can not play on ultra and stays between 72 and 75 degrees while playing on high. Textures sometimes don't render and the game quits out far more often for me than others. This could be a game issue but from what I see the card does not have sufficient cooling because increasing or decreasing the airflow of my box has little effect on the gpu temperature.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a pair of crossfired 4850 512g. There is an improvement in battlefield bad company 2 using the new card but not a strongly significant one.READ FULL REVIEW
